Digital profile for research staff

Building your digital profile

Author identifiers

Your unique author ID will be with you throughout your research career and is used to:

  • Avoid ambiguity and confusion over authorship and, thus, dispersion of the scientific output produced by the same author.
  • Improve and guarantee connection between the existing scientific output retrieval, collection and indexing systems, and thereby link referenced research activities in different information systems.
  • Improve communication with the scientific community (submission of articles to publishers and documents to institutional repositories, etc.).
  • Enable participation in internal, national and international calls for grants.

As publications are indexed in scientific production databases, authors are assigned other IDs that these databases generate automatically.
